We find in the Philadelphia Weekly Times, of July 24, 1886, an illustrated article from the pen of Col. D. R. Hundley. Among the illustrations is a portrait of the Colonel, from a photograph taken in Richmond, Va., in 1863. We congratulate our friend upon the high compliment paid him. He has been a regular contributor to the Times for a number of years, several of his articles have been published in the INDEPENDENT. His present article is too lengthy for our columns, but is the best he has yet written.
